My kids are the best behaved children in the world. Seriously; I’m pretty willing to place bets on this issue: my kids behave better behaved than your kids.
I took my triplets to the grocery store by myself two weeks ago - just Daddy and three two-year-old triplets. We survived. More importantly, since this had every chance of devolving into a Carrie-esque situation, the store and everyone inside survived. This is a minor miracle. I know this because I’m constantly seeing tweets about how scared people are to take their singleton or two out.
And then @wyguymom says “God bless you. I wouldn’t attempt that if my life depended on it.”
It’s the grocery store, people. On my last solo trip I managed to explode an entire bottle of Manischewitz wine on the floor all by myself. It got cleaned up (I think). No harm; no foul. And what would the kids do? Scream. Please; I’m so over screaming its not even funny. Don’t like that my kids are screaming? Good news, they won’t be near you for more than a couple minutes and you can leave their presence. Let that sink in: YOU CAN LEAVE THEIR PRESENCE. How about a little sympathy for the parent of screaming triplet who can’t leave?
I suppose they could start knocking things off the shelf, but, honestly, I do that all myself.
